Following on from their drama work with PaddleBoat Theatre Company a number of students have entered the National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS) Raising the Bar competition. The competition aims to drive expectations of what Deaf children and young people can achieve in dance, music and drama.

With help from English and Expressive Arts teacher Deb Thomas, students filmed their individual performances which were then sent to the NDCS. The prize for 24 lucky winners is a two-day masterclass in Birmingham with a leading Deaf professional in the industry. Fingers crossed we’ll be getting a call from the NDCS soon!
